    this Olympic team is going to look very different than the one that was assembled last year. Bron, Melon, and Marbury will all likely be on the team. They will probably have to add a college player or two, like they used to do. No one wants to play.

    Malone, KG, Kobe, Kidd, AI, T-Mac, Allen, and VC are all out of it. There may be more, but those are the only one's I know about. And Shaq won't play, most likely.

    report today was that Amare might join.

    another reason for a lot of them dropping out is a lot of them are concerned about the security issue. They don't want to get bombed or anything.

    because Layden's slow.....
    he wanted a use to be all-star with lots of injuries.......
    instead of a young player that would be an all-star......

    i found an update online - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    LeBron James, Stephon Marbury and Shawn Marion will be invited to join the U.S. Olympic men's basketball team, sources told The Associated Press.

    The USA Basketball Selection committee held a conference call Tuesday to choose several replacement players on a roster that will be missing several of the best American players.

    Three sources with knowledge of the selection committee's actions, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the U.S. federation had decided to add the 19-year-old James, the NBA's Rookie of the Year, as the likely replacement at shooting guard for Kobe Bryant.

    Marbury was added to replace Jason Kidd, who has indicated he'll likely withdraw, and Marion will provide depth at forward with Elton Brand, Kevin Garnett and Karl Malone not expected to participate.

    Sources told the AP that if O'Neal decides to sit out the Olympics, Kenyon Martin of New Jersey and Lamar Odom of Miami are among the players being discussed as possible replacements. If Bibby withdraws, Sam Cassell is the leading candidate to replace him, and Ron Artest and Carmelo Anthony are among the names being discussed to replace McGrady, if he backs out.

    The U.S. Olympic team will have a new point guard running the show when they invite Stephon Marbury of the New York Knicks to replace his rival Jason Kidd of the New Jersey Nets. Marbury's invitation, one of among three replacements, was confirmed last night by team President Isiah Thomas.

    "It's a great honor for us to have a player of his stature on our team,'' Thomas said, adding that only paperwork needed to be completed with USA Basketball. "I just thought that if Jason Kidd wasn't going to be able to participate, I felt that Steph at the point guard position should be on the team.''
    Just heard about this.....
